Industry and legal experts share best practices in managing time critical investigations
London – May 13, 2013 – Consilio, a Symphony Technology Group (STG) company and global leader in eDiscovery software and services, has announced that two of its key Executives will be members of a panel discussion designed to provide valuable insights on how to prepare for competition law audits and dawn raids.
The open event is scheduled to take place on Thursday, 23 May, 2013 from 8.30am to 10.00am CET at Cercle de Lorraine, place Poelaert 6, 1000 Bruxelles. Registration and refreshments will be available from 8.00am. The discussion will be conducted in French and is targeted at French speaking corporations and in-house counsel.
The expert panel will include Mathieu van Ravenstein, Director of European Managed Review Services at Consilio; Olivier Aelterman, Senior e-Discovery Consultant at Consilio; Frédéric Puel, Partner at Fidal; and Thierry Bontinck, Partner at Dal & Veldekens. The subject matter will be on how to address European competition law audits, dawn raids, and the technical and legal considerations of how to reduce risk.
Mathieu van Ravenstein, Director of European Managed Review Services at Consilio, adds, “Corporations and corporate counsel should not underestimate the time taken to conduct the initial stages of an audit exercise. In a multi-jurisdictional matter with custodians in various countries, simply getting to the right place at the right time, and ensuring the relevant members of staff are present, can be a daunting task. The key to responding to a regulatory investigation is in the preparation. Understanding your company’s IT infrastructure and the legislation that restricts movement of data in relevant jurisdictions, and knowing who to turn to if a matter arose, will make a huge difference in time and cost.”
